    macOS Catalina - Randomly reboots.

    I had this EXACT problem when I was installing Mojave the first time. To the point that I simply gave up and ran High Sierra until right before Catalina came out. Unfortunately I don't have any advice EXCEPT: Everything ran FINE like clockwork once I did a totally clean re-do (not re-install...

    Anyone tried a non-working WiFi/BT Combo card just for Bluetooth?

    Here's my deal.. I've found Bluetooth to be a lot more useful than I ever expected lately. I've got one laptop with it on the MB so no problem, and another I had a card in that had BT also so it was on there and I went thru all hell to disable it because I didn't use it. Well things change and...

    macOS Mojave Synaptics Touchpad detected as a mouse

    Also, I don't know if I mentioned this before or not and I'm on my way to work like in a hurry lol... It (non-admin account and enter credentials when needed is good practice anyway and in no way to me a pita compared to windows) works like a champ on Catalina too. I've got two laptops...

    macOS Mojave Synaptics Touchpad detected as a mouse

    Believe it or not, I found a kinda-sorta solution. (I was literally in the middle of trying different versions, version parts, rig-jobs etc) when I stumbled on your post on a Google search. It works FINE - at least when not using an administrator account. At least the gestures I use (single...

    macOS Mojave Synaptics Touchpad detected as a mouse

    I wish I knew the answer.. I will post if I figure it out. It's driving me nuts as well - everything else is working GREAT and I have the same laptop w/High Sierra no problems whatsoever. What kills me is the tap (the main thing to me) works FINE until you login - you can use it to select...

    High Sierra works great on old Dell T5400, 2xXeon x5460's & XFX GTX 280!

    SMH... I just wanted to throw you an update. I got the drive with High Sierra on it and the machine is running. However I screwed the actual install up enough trying to get a counterfeit GT550 working that it won't even boot to the desktop unless I put that card in it.. which makes it...

    High Sierra works great on old Dell T5400, 2xXeon x5460's & XFX GTX 280!

    OK.. I have attached the EFI folder off my working no problems what-so-ever Sierra box that I'm using right now (HW wise identical to the HS box except 8x2gb vs 4x4gb and different vid cards.) I pulled HW Monitor (version 6.25.1426 as shown in Get Info) out of kexts/Other 'cuz it was friggen...

    High Sierra works great on old Dell T5400, 2xXeon x5460's & XFX GTX 280!

    Hey I Just noticed that end of the reply.. wanted to try & explain the VGA - to my best ability at least based on experience seeing this pan out a number of ways.. I've seen it on a few laptops too, some work some don't. It seems that if the VGA output is internally derived from a digital...

    High Sierra works great on old Dell T5400, 2xXeon x5460's & XFX GTX 280!

    Cool... that sounds like it should work no problem with my EFI folder and a diff ser #, maybe a couple tweaks. I will get the EFI's posted in a couple hours. I had to take care of some stuff and just went to check out where I want to set that box up and realized I took the video cards out...

    High Sierra works great on old Dell T5400, 2xXeon x5460's & XFX GTX 280!

    I sure will.. but I'm moving the bedroom where I have the two boxes around right now and I'll have the High Sierra one hooked up later today. I use legacy as on the T5400's as there is no UEFI... however I am still using an older version of Clover, you're certainly using a newer one. I THINK I...

    High Sierra works great on old Dell T5400, 2xXeon x5460's & XFX GTX 280!

    I'm going to be messing around with Mojave soon.. I got past the +++++++xlong-line-of-em and got it up and running (for 20-30 mins at a clip) before a random crash. (And not even a normal one, just doing things and it suddenly reboots.). I haven't even attempted this one a Dell, but that's my...

    How To do to run a Nvidia GeForce Gt 210 with QE/CI on High sierra?

    Yeah, I've got to agree with the try it approach. Honestly, I haven't had to patience or time to get Mojave up on anything whatsoever yet - but I've spent all of an hour trying. "Not Supported" could equal "copy kext from High Sierra and it works fine" or "forget it." My experience is it may...

    High Sierra works great on old Dell T5400, 2xXeon x5460's & XFX GTX 280!

    Short answer yes.. long answer, I don't know how. They would all spin up to full speed under Sierra, but under High Sierra are well behaved and quiet as they were under El Capitan. I still get incorrect readings about CPU core temps (but that's it, everything else works fine) but it doesn't...

    GTX 550 ti for HTPC - Works El Cap.. HS no dice.. anyone been here before?

    Hi all, Here's my deal with one of my Hackintosh boxes and I'm hoping someone has been down this road before and can point out something I've missed, just tell me straight-up no it isn't going to work, or knows if Sierra will work whereas High Sierra won't. If not, thanks for reading and maybe...

    How To do to run a Nvidia GeForce Gt 210 with QE/CI on High sierra?

    You'll need an El Capitan machine, or access to a friend's machine that can copy it for you or something - real or Hackintosh, doesn't matter. It will be installed in /System/Library/Extensions.. once you get El Captian installed on that box and working, or if you have access to another machine...
